The elected Democratic representative from Pennsylvania just called about a third of his own constituents racists. If this is an accurate portrayal of your own thinking I could understand why you would think it to be no big deal. If anyone that didn't know me personally referred to me in that manner, I would need to exercise some form of retribution, like voting his ass out of office, and his cronies for extra measure.

Not to mention, stereotyping folks in that way who may have voted for you is probably just bad juju.

His only error is he probably underestimated the percentage.

The bottom line is that these "racist" folks apparently have not appeared on the polling radar...so 4% of the population are essentially renegades, uncounted to date. If this kind of phenomenon holds true in other areas, specifically swing states, the whole shooting match tightens way up.

It also gives the Dems a great cop out should BO lose. "John McCain, elected by the racist vote." Just ask Jack Murtha, resident expert.

(Mark my words on this one.)
